This seems to be a heartbreaking song about a person who loses their friend while they’re still young…

I have to give credit to this site. The author provided a useful interpretation of the song that I referred to while translating it.


跫音のとまる背に 面影ばかり
重さに下り 窓明かり 欠ける

ashioto no tomaru se ni omokage bakari
omosa ni kudari madoakari kakeru

Behind people who’ve stopped moving are nothing but vestiges.
Sinking heavily, the windowlight was waning.

はじめより穏やかで 手合わせ 友ささめく
最後まで残るほうが 影厭う

hajime yori odoyaka de teawase tomo sasameku
saigo made nokoru hou ga kage itou

Calmer than at the start, I held my friend’s hand and whispered.
I’d rather stay until the end. I balk at shadows.

目つむれば やにわに 残る

me tsumureba yaniwa ni nokoru

When I close my eyes, they remain there for an instant.

斜になる
沢山の部屋が在るが 遠く佇む

hasu ni naru
takusan no heya ga aru ga tooku tatazumu

Many rooms
become distorted, but I loiter far away.

結びの目 駆け足で 解けていく
思い思い

musubi no me kakeashi de tokete iku
omoi omoi

The eye of the knot comes untied in a rush
as it pleases…

頽れた瑞恵の跡
小止みなく増える

kuzuoreta mizue no ato
koyami naku fueru

The traces of collapsed, young wisdom
increase without lull.

跫音のとまる瀬で
友が手を振る
笑顔で

ashioto no tomaru se de
tomo ga te o furu
egao de

In the shallows where footsteps stop,
My friend waves a hand
with a smile.
